With a core count of 64 with 128 threads the most I/O at 128 lanes of PCIE 4.0. Dr. Lisa Su stated that Rome is the new standard for data centers.
She showed a slide that boasted nearly double the performance of its closest competitor (Intel’s Xeon processors) Shown Below.
Dr. Lisa Su went on to say that their processors also have nearly double the performance of Intel’s Cascade Lake as seen in slide below.

Dr. Lisa Su had a few guests on stage such as Twitters senior engineer Jen Frasier, but the last one was likely the most interesting and that was Google’s Bart Sano. He talked about his partnership with AMD and the use of EPYC Rome in their data centers. Which they have already been working on putting into use. Su mentioned that Google has already been using EPYC Rome and that they were the first to use the new line up of processors.
